Drag & Drop Watermark

Dear LR Engineers,

Since version 3, I've been using LR with lots of pleasure and fun, but there's one thing I think would make a great feature and that is the possibility to drag and drop a watermark. I've seen this being done in other watermark software, but it's a drag to do all the fine work in LR and then have to export to another application.

Custom positioning of a watermark in an image in the LR watermark section on export can be done by using the 9 positions together with adding space before or above the watermark in the area you write it. 
For many photographers, they'd like to position the watermark at different places in different images. Especially as a deterrent.
Having a feature where one can click, drag and drop a watermark at any position in the image would really make it easier and faster. Most definitely if one uses an image as a watermark. At the moment, using an image as a watermark can only be used at the 9 positions.

Also, one could use the Print module to position a watermark, but in a way that defeats the purpose, it's a bit cumbersome and sometimes there is a white line at the edges of the image when exported to jpeg. One could also export to Photoshop and do it there, but again....couple of extra steps.

Well, I hope such a feature makes it or can make it into a future version of LR. 

Thanks for listening and pondering if this would work......

Thanks Chris. 
I was actually looking around at some comments, ideas and questions here and this topic has been raised many times before. So it's not new........would be great to have indeed.
